A Family Tradition - In 1957 La Palapa, was the first restaurant on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. It was the last dwelling going south and many of their friends called them “crazy” for building so far out of town. At the time there was no bridge across the Río Cuale and to travel to the resteraunt from the main part of town, a jeep or one of the two existing taxis needed to be hired, as long as the river wasn’t too high!
